With each new prep school season comes a dawn of a new era. Players come and go — whether it’s moving on to junior hockey or graduating and playing in college.
As the 2018-19 prep school hockey season approaches, it’s time to look at the next group of players who will impact the circuit. While most of this year’s newcomers will be ‘02s and ‘03s, there are some ‘04s that could break into their teams’ playing rotations this winter.
While it’s tough for ‘04s to have much of an effect on the 2018-19 season, due to competing against players that could be four or five years older, these 12 players are names to remember.
Last year, there were a few ‘03s who had positive seasons for their respective teams. Before moving on to Dexter for this season, defenseman Patrick Morrissey had a great year at Roxbury Latin. Jackson Cuotu played big minutes and put up solid offensive numbers at St. Mark’s. Forwards Paul Davey, a BC commit, Matt McGroarty, and Ryan St. Louis, a Northeastern commit, all played for NEPSAC Large School Champion Brunswick.
